    Definitely addicted to their Berry. I remember watchin an interview with her on a talk show and she said she carries 2-3 blackberries with her at a time.

    Man this is crazy. You are dancing with the entire McPoyle Family. These people are freak shows, man...freaks. But you're keeping your cool. You're keeping your cool. You know why? Because you are the Green Man. Green Man is saving your life right now, bro. Just go with the flow.

    All in all, blackberry is preferred in all types of business. With rim’s securities which as of right now no one can touch. With rim’s push technology and now if I read correctly the secure link between ur playbook and blackberry device. Their be the 1st smartphone marker to actually secure a bluetooth signal. Moral of the story the guy is a blackberry hater lol.

    lol, she wasn’t the first and won’t be the last, nor is celebrity status required.

    I mean, how many times have you heard the funeral cellphone incident story, the wedding, the business deal…cellphones have been pushing at etiquette’s gate for some time now so it was only a matter of time before cellphones started conflicting with law, such as airplane takeoffs.

    That said, I did like the spokesperson’s comment. Could have slipped in a few more punches @ Apple though :)

    lol, wow at the 68 year old punching the kid

    I can’t believe an old man would hit a little kid over a phone. Don’t get me wrong, I’m addicted to my Berry too, but I ain’t fighting anyone for it. I love hearing stories about celebrities getting kicked off of planes for refusing to get off their phones. Did they really think it was going to work at 32000 feet?

    It wasn’t the first and won’t be the last, if I had read this in the newspaper I probably would glanced right over it. Also, blackberry is substitutable for other things…

    excuse my lack of experience….the last time i was on a plane, it was 1992 and the internet was just a thought…..

    can u not use the phone after the plane takes off?

    also, can’t u just shut off the radio or put it in airplane mode?

    It’s during takeoff and landing, all electronics are supposed to be turned off. When the plane gets to cruising altitude, it’s usually then that the pilot will announce that you can turn electronics on.
